The Traffic Commission has been diligently working on revising the Traffic Calming Program. The Commission has been collaborating with the Beaverton Committee for Community Involvement in gathering feedback from Neighborhood Association Committees (NACs) to modify the program to ensure the success of neighborhoods in having traffic-calming devices installed where needed. The commission also recommended reducing the posted speed limit on Southwest Hall Boulevard between Southwest Second and Fifth Streets from 30 mph to 20 mph as a safe speed in the core downtown area.
The Traffic Commission advises City Council on traffic safety issues, assists in promulgating standards and policies related to neighborhood traffic management, and reviews and comments upon changes to traffic patterns and programs.
